Paper garland

I am getting pretty excited about decorating my house for Christmas. Oh the crafty possibilties! I saw this post on How About Orange this morning and thought these paper ball ornaments would look pretty great strung together to make a garland. It seems like a nifty update on traditional paper chains, which I also love.  All white would be quite sophisticated, but it’s hard to pass up the chance to use some pretty colored paper. For those people who save wrapping paper, this would be a great way to use up some of your stash. I plan to get my little elf to help me. Stay tuned for the finished garland!

    • I know! I like sophisticated in theory but not in practice. I am waiting for my blocks to arrive in the mail so I can start making my Christmas village. I can’t wait!

  1. I think I’ll use metaliic thread and tape it to one of the flowers before I construct the orb. I’ll contruct the orbs along the same thread, spacing them about two or three inches apart. I plan to give it a try this weekend, so I’ll let you know how it goes!
